The documentary, “Breaking the Blockade,” produced by Alternate Focus, is a stirring tribute to ISM and the courage of solidarity activists from around the world who have dedicated themselves to breaking the blockade and siege of Gaza since the summer of 2008. It is also an exploration of the activism and commitment of Ms. Arraf.  The International Solidarity Movement (ISM) is a Palestinian led movement committed to solving issues between Israel and Palestine.  Huwaida Arraf is one of the co-founders of the group and was filmed giving a speech at San Diego State University. During her speech, Huwaida talks about the history of the Palestinian people and the ISM's role in trying to aid them. Also mentioned in her speech is the ISM's attempts in sending aid to Gaza by boat. In one of their more recent voyages the group sent a 'flotilla' of ships to Gaza that was intercepted by the Israeli Navy. During the interception civilians were shot and killed on one of the ISM's boats which lead to an investigation by the United Nations.
